I am back ... and wish I wasn't!!!! I LOVE MEXICO!!! It was an unforgettable vacation that was filled with tons of fun, drunken moments , sunny days, and awesome adventures.
Cancun was an ideal vacation destination, with incredible night life and amazing adventure. Grand Oasis is a beautiful 5 star resort, and is definitely the heart of the party!!!
My vacation wardrobe was simple and casual. It mainly consisted of bikinis, summery dresses, my new Miss Trish of Capri Sandals ( i lived in them), high heels, flats, jeans, and tees.
Blast off: Traveling from Canada to Mexico can be a bit difficult, since we left during a crazy snow storm so it was annoying to carry heavy winter clothes when I arrived in hot Mexico.
I am wearing:
M. Rena Wool Sweater
Gap Long Sveele Cotton Shirt
Juicy Couture Flats - so comfy
Gap Leather Purse
I wore fluffy flats and my favorite M. Rena sweater. My carry on luggage consisted of two purses, my favorite large leather hobo and a Coach swingpack. And of course, no make up - it is just really bad for your skin on the flight.NEW YEARS All I can say is nothing can compare to ringing in the new year in Cancun.... Simply WOW!!!
New Years eve is always a big deal to me and having an opportunity to celebrate it in Cancun meant that I had to find a perfect dress. I wore a simple yet comfortable breeze dress from French Connection. It was an an unforgettable night in Cancun city.
I am wearing:
French Connection Dress with pockets
Michael Kors Heels
To kick-off our New Years eve, we had an amazing dinner at a Brazilian steakhouse, and then went to The City night club with Sandra Collins DJ'ing. To cap off our night there was a party by a swimming pool in our resort.
When Andrew and I were deciding on our vacation destination earlier this year, we knew that we wanted to have a cultural experience as well as a party atmosphere, therefore Mexico seemed like an ideal choice. For me, as an architectural freak seeing the ruins was probably the most exciting part of the trip ( I am a geek, I know,lol)... and although, I wish I could have seen as three sites close to Cancun (Chichen Itza, Tulum, and Coba) .... I settled for Coba.
I am wearing:
French Connection Cotton Tee Dress
Ray Ban Wayfarers
Coba is a large ruined city of the Pre-Colonial Mayan civilization and is also a location of the newly discovered Mayan ruins and pyramids. The site was opened to the public in 1972 and only 8 % of an estimate of 6,000 structures are restored.The main pyramid, Nohoch Mul is 42 meters tall ( 138 feet) and is the highest in the Yucatan Peninsula.
Our day was filled with adventure in a Mayan village located in the jungle, where we had a Mayan ceremony with a shaman, ate Mayan food with the locals, wandered around a jungle,Zip-lined across the lake, went swimming in a meteorite crater( Cenote), as well as water canoeing through a lagoon.
The day was definately filled with adventure and excitement that is truly unforgettable.The other half of the pictures are coming up soon :)
To a certain degree I am glad to be back... but still adjusting to the brutal cold weather.
Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it on the 7th!!!!!
